The internal wranglings in the New Patriotic Party (NDC) may have subsided but President John Mahama is making a meal out it.
For the umpteenth time, president Mahama, who is seeking a second term, has launched on it, urging Ghanaians to shun the Party in the December vote because it is divided.
He is currently on a four-day tour of the Ashanti Region, the stronghold of the NPP.
Early on, thugs following his convoy assaulted a 60-year-old man making change gesture at him.
Addressing a rally at Anweaso in the Adansi Asokwa constituency, the president posited that the NDC is the most united party in Ghana because the NPP has suspended it chairman, general secretary and first vice chairman.
Despite the NDC also suspending 23 members including sitting MPs for contesting as independent candidates, the president says the NPP is not ready for power.
He said: “Today, the party that’s ready to govern this country is the NDC. Why am I saying so? Today, NDC is the most united and well-organised party than any other party in Ghana. Look at what’s going on in NPP. NPP is divided into two factions.
“If that party is rife with these divisions even in opposition, what will happen if we give them power? They are not ready to govern, so let’s continue to leave them in opposition for them to take their time to put their house in order after 2021 then they come back for Ghanaians to consider them,” he added.
On Sunday morning, he held a keep fit exercise at Asawase, one of few constituencies in the Ashanti region that party has sitting MPs, at saw record attendance.
